The Reading EOG is on Wednesday, 5/31!
The 8th Grade Science EOG is on Friday 6/2!
The 7th Grade Math 1 EOC is on Friday 6/2!
In 8th grade, these students take Math 2, which does not have a state final EOC. Instead, they take a final exam made by the GCS math department.
How long is the EOG?
The general test is 138 minutes long. All students can take up to an extra hour of time, if needed. For the Math 1 EOC, the test length is 180 minutes with an extra hour, if needed.
How is the EOG scored?
Students receive an achievement level for EOG and EOC tests.
- Not Proficient--Students who are Not Proficient demonstrate inconsistent understanding of grade-level content standards and will need support.
- Level 3--Students at Level 3 demonstrate sufficient understanding of grade-level content standards though some support may be needed to engage with content at the next grade/course.
- Level 4--Students at Level 4 demonstrate a thorough understanding of grade-level content standards and are on track for career and college.
- Level 5--Students at Level 5 demonstrate comprehensive understanding of grade-level content standards, are on track for career and college, and are prepared for advanced content at the grade/course.
Do the EOGs count as a grade?
The EOGs do not count as a grade. EOCs (Math 1) and Final Exams (Math 2) do count in the student's final grade calculation. For Math 1 and 2 students, their score counts for 20% of their final grade.
When will I receive the score reports?
Individual score reports will be sent with your child's Quarter 4 report card.
What happens if my child doesn't score Level 3 or above?
Students who score "Not Proficient" may still meet or exceed their expected growth for the school year. They may also still pass their classes and their grade level. Some students who score under Level 3 may be invited to Enrichment and Re-Test week June 13-16. They will receive intense tutoring and have the opportunity to retake the EOG.
Can my child opt out of EOGs?
Per state regulation, there is no “opt-out’ provision and these tests must be taken in-person. North Carolina does not offer a remote option for any state accountability assessment.
